Tell us about a time you made a false assumption about a person or a place — how did they prove you wrong?
Okay, so I tend to see all the good in people, all the time. When they turn out to be different, it does not entirely affect me. Perhaps a shrug is the worst I had dealt with since discovering someone’s true nature. Expectations.
I have been friends with a Scottish woman and her family for quite some time now. I have met all of her close friends who truly don’t give a shit about who or what you are, besides that suddenly they have acquired a new friend, which is absolutely awesome. So, in this package I have met a rather odd girl, Afrikaans like me, who liked to clean the house while everyone else was outside having drinks and going crazy. She seemed lovely, beautiful, intelligent, but she was sad and withdrew herself from the crowd since her boyfriend was part of the group of friends. I really don’t want to delve into details, since it’s rather personal, but my assumption of her, though basically still the same as when I first met her, has changed and expanded considerably. For the worst, unfortunately. Although she is not a bad person, making bad choices ALL the time kind of moulds her into one. The sad part being, she does not stop although she is aware of the wrong she is doing.
Sad but true. I’ll get someone to ask the universe if it could somehow show her the right way 😉
